Dry hops for a sticke alt

(1/3) > >>

corkybstewart:
My sticke alt has gone from 1.080 to 1.025 so I'm thinking of adding some dry hops to the buckets soon.  It was bittered with Perle and late additions(20, 10, flameout) were strisslespalt. What would be a good hop to use in the buckets?

Beertracker:
I've had good luck using Crystal, Liberty or Mt. Hood. On the German side, either Hersbrucker or Spalt. You couldn't go wrong with some more Strisselspalts either, so long as they're fresh. Go with whichever's fresher, as fresher is better for dry-hopping!  ;)

akr71:
I've dryhopped with Perle and quite liked the results.

Call me crazy, but if it's dry hopped, I don't call it an altbier anymore.  Then it becomes a sort of pale ale.

It's my understanding that sticke is dry hopped more often than not...or at least that it's not unusual.
